Press release date: January 22, 2013

LAS VEGAS -- Meritor North American Aftermarket business, based in Florence, Ky., has announced the immediate availability of a Meritor-brand shock absorber product line. This new line replaces the Gabriel shocks previously sold by the company and is available immediately to all North American warehouse distributors and OEM dealers.

Announced here during Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week, the new Meritor shock absorbers - American-made in an ISO-certified facility -- are available in three models: cab shocks, standard duty shocks and premium adjustable shocks.

These are the first members of Meritor's new AllFit series, that address the all-makes market segment demanded by fleets, owner-operators and installers for quality, all-makes shock absorbers.

"These shocks reconcile perfectly with the diverse application and performance demands of the heavy duty aftermarket," said Tim Bauer, director, Undercarriage Products. "We understand our customers want choices, so we've made this first move to offer this broad grouping of all-makes parts under a Meritor brand. Truck operators can enjoy the benefits of a complete shock absorber from a trusted supplier while our customers can streamline inventory and enhance the operator's loyalty regardless of a fleet's brand composition. The all-makes difference is in the bottom line."

The new shocks - ideal for Class 6-8 linehaul trucks, trailers and key vocational segments like fire and rescue, delivery vehicles, school buses, and municipal vehicles - provide an advanced sealing system, premium hydraulic  fluid, and a robust design to reduce excessive misting and extend product life.

The three product classes are:
--  Cab shock: designed to isolate the cab from the vehicle's frame maximizing ride comfort.
--  Standard-Duty: manufactured with premium components to help ensure longevity on the road.
--  Premium Adjustable: can be converted to three settings...regular, firm or extra firm to support a variety of ride preferences.

"These shocks will provide superior ride comfort, all for greater operational control of the vehicle and minimize road vibration," said Bauer. "Shock absorbers play an important role in this equation by supporting greater control and maximizing protection for the driver and cargo."
